 “Fear the Walking Dead”
Premieres Sunday, August 23 at 9 PM ET/PT on AMC
          The Walking Dead follow up series Fear the Walking Dead is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark and English teacher Travis Manawa have managed to assemble.
          The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and our dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.
         The August 23 premiere will be an extended 90-minute episode. AMC also announced its commitment to a 15-episode second season of “Fear the Walking Dead,” which will air in 2016.
